The revelation comes after news that Ed would be releasing a Christmas song with Elton John.

Speaking on the Swedish talk show Skavlan of The Weird Proposal Moment with Cheri, Ed said: ‘I was getting down on one knee and I said, ‘Will you marry me?’

‘And she was like, ‘Are you kidding?’ There was such a long silence and I just went, ‘Please?’

‘This is the most human I have ever felt because in my career. Sometimes you find that it’s like, ‘Can I do this?’ And people are like ‘yes’.

‘You get to a point where it’s back to normal and then you’re in a position where you’re literally on your knees, ‘Will you marry me?’

‘This is such a big life decision that one has to make in the blink of an eye. Thankfully she said yes.

Ed added the proposal in Suffolk: ‘The day it was down with rain and I built a af***ing pergola at the end of the garden to do it. Sunset, pergola, some wine… and it was coming down with the rain.

‘I kept saying we should go for a walk and she was like, ‘No!’ I was like, ‘Are you sure you don’t want to go for a walk?’

‘Time was running out. There was a date engraved on the ring and I was like, ‘I have to do it today!’ ‘It gets to 9 p.m. and I was like, ‘For the f***’ sake!’

The new interview comes after it was revealed that Ed and Elton John are joining in a bid for this year’s official Christmas No.

Ed revealed the news during an interview with NPO Radio 2 in the Netherlands, explaining that Elton had reached out to him last year.

It came after the 74-year-old songstress’ hit Step Into Christmas – which was released in 1973 – entered the charts for the first time during last year’s festive period.

Ed told the foreign show: ‘Elton called me on Christmas Day to say Merry Christmas. Elton rings me up almost every single day. He said, ‘The steps at Christmas are number 6 on the charts! I want to do another Christmas song – will you do it with me?

‘It’s just me and him. It’s great.’

However, after recording the song for the first time, Ed admitted before changing his mind: ‘I didn’t feel like it suited me’.

He explained: ‘You don’t know if you’ll even be there tomorrow, everything can change overnight,’ he said. ‘I can’t be here tomorrow. Why shouldn’t I take advantage of this opportunity?’

This came after news last week that Ed paid himself a cool £21.35 million last year, his company’s accounts revealed.

The payout was more than double the £10 million he paid himself in dividend payments from his company Ed Sheeran Ltd in 2019.

Accounts accessed by MailOnline show that the Shape of You singer has earned £112.4 million over the past three years, including £31.7 million he made last year.

After taking into account dividend payments and other costs, Ed still has £26.6 million in reserves in the company.

It makes money…
